My son Colton was gone yesterday, last night, and most of today at the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) here in Metro Detroit, Michigan. This is where he took various tests to become enlisted in the US Marine Corps. Colton did very well and he will be able to choose from just about any job he is interested in.
I was a wreck last night. I missed him and he was just spending the night at a hotel in a nearby city! LOL Oh well, it’s a Mom’s prerogative, right?
He will most likely not go to boot camp until December, because there are so many recruits right now. This will be a long wait for Colton. I know he is anxious to get started. But, as his Mom, it’s okay with me if December never comes. 😦
I’d like to hear form other military Moms and learn how you are coping with your child in the military. I am very proud of Colton. A mother bird does have to let her baby birds leave the nest at some point. 🙂
